More than 100 property owners near the Coquihalla will no longer have to worry about wildfire.

Evacuation alerts in Electoral Area N (Beautiful Nicola Valley-South), for 133 properties have been rescinded to all clear as the threat of wildfire in the area no longer poses an imminent risk to the safety of residents, according to the Thompson Nicola Regional District's press release.

The July Mountain wildfire, burning along Highway 5, is currently being held, according to the B.C. Wildfire Service, meaning the fire is not expected to grow outside of its existing boundaries. Last week, all evacuation orders due to the fire were downgraded to alerts.

The following properties are no longer on evacuation alert:

  • 5815 Brookmere Rd;
  • 872 to 933 Brookmere Station Rd;
  • 240 and 280 Busby Rd;
  • 905 to 920 Caboose Lane;
  • 3400 to 3785 Cantlon Rd;
